Photo by @amivitale | Elephants are among the world's most intelligent species. They express a wide variety of behaviors, including those associated with grief, learning, altruism, use of tools, compassion, self-awareness, memory, and language. Researchers recently discovered that elephants can distinguish differences in human gender, age, and ethnicity purely by the sound of someone’s voice.

¡Feliz Día Mundial de la Jirafa! Además de cuidar a los elefantes, Reteti Elephant Sanctuary también se ocupa de la jirafa reticulada huérfana (entre otros animales). Aquí, Lekupania recibió un beso de uno de sus compañeros. Cada vez que una nueva jirafa de rescate llega a Sarara, las tres jirafas que han sido exitosamente rescatadas regresan al santuario para recibir al recién llegado.

Happy World Giraffe Day! In addition to caring for elephants, Reteti Elephant Sanctuary also cares for orphaned reticulated giraffe (among other animals). Here, Lekupania received a kiss from one of his charges. Each time a new rescue giraffe comes to Sarara, the three giraffe who have been successfully re-wilded return to the sanctuary to welcome the newcomer. They must have some way of communicating and knowing these babies are there?

Regrann from @r.e.s.c.u.e - Orphaned baby elephants of the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) spend most of their day in the wild, learning to BE wild. They spend every day from 6am to 6pm in the wildness learning to graze, browse and be a part of the wild so that when it’s time to re-introduce them, they will be prepared.
We at Reteti are proud to operate in partnership with Conservation International (@conservationorg) who provide critical operational support and work to scale the Reteti community-centered model to create lasting impacts worldwide.
We're are excited and honored that @davematthewsband, in collaboration @conservationorg, have launched a fundraising @prizeo to help support the work we do. For a contribution of just $10, you could win a trip to see Dave in concert and another trip to see us! Learn more by clicking on the link in our profile.

Photo by @amivitale. 16 year old mother, Ye Ye explore her enclosure at the Wolong China Conservation & Research Center for the Giant Panda in Sichuan Province, China. Her name, whose characters represent Japan and China, celebrates the friendship between the two nations. Ye Ye’s cub Hua Yan (Pretty Girl) is being trained for release into the wild.

In a region where bad environmental news is common, the giant panda might prove to be the exception and is a testament to the perseverance and efforts of Chinese scientists and conservationists. By breeding and releasing pandas, augmenting existing populations and protecting habitat, they are on their way to successfully saving their most famous ambassador and in the process putting the wild back into an icon.

My first book, "Panda Love: The Secret Lives of Pandas," about these adorable ambassadors was released earlier this month. Currently available signed copies have sold out. However, you can still order a signed copy on backorder. Signed copies will begin shipping again in Sept 2018.

Repost from @r.e.s.c.u.e
・・・
The Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) is the story about how warriors who once feared elephants have become their protectors. All men working at Reteti were at some point warriors or are currently warriors, It’s a tribal rite of passage that every young man becomes a warrior.

What’s happening here at Reteti, without fanfare, is nothing less than the beginnings of a transformation in the way Samburus relate to wild animals they have long feared. This oasis where orphans grow up, learning to be wild so that one day they can rejoin their herds, is as much about the people as it is about elephants.
You can be a part of Reteti and join us in protecting wildlife. You might even win a trip to see us.

For pastoralists like the #Samburu, more grass means more food for their cattle—one reason indigenous communities have begun relating to elephants, animals long feared, in a new way. The loss of elephants has a ripple effect on other animals and the people co existing with them. Elephants are the ecosystem’s “engineers” who feed on low brush and bulldoze small trees, promoting growth of grasses, which in turn attract bulk grazers like buffalo, endangered Grevy’s zebras, eland, and oryx, themselves prey for carnivores: lions, cheetahs, wild dogs, leopards.

The Samburu are the force behind Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in Africa. We provides a safe place for injured elephants to heal and later, be returned back to the wild. You can support us and the people who protect wildlife.

Photo by @amivitale. A panda cub sleeps at the Bifengxia Giant panda base in Sichuan province. When giant pandas are born, they are tiny, blind, and pink, with very few hairs. The average weight is 100 grams (0.2 pounds), only 1/900 of their mother's weight. To understand how tiny that is, human babies are born 1/20 of their mother's weight.

Chinese scientists and their international counterparts cracked the puzzle of successfully breeding pandas in captivity after decades of disappointment. They are now on their way to successfully saving their most famous ambassador and in the process putting the wild back into an icon.

My first book, "Panda Love: The Secret Lives of Pandas," about these adorable ambassadors was released earlier this month. Currently available signed copies have sold out. However, you can still order a signed copy on backorder. Signed copies will begin shipping again in Sept 2018.

Mike Learka receives affection from Nadasoit, an eight month old elephant who was orphaned due to the drought. Mike, a Samburu warrior, is one of the incredible keepers at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), the first ever community owned and run elephant sanctuary in all of Africa. While providing a home and nuturing young, orphaned elephant calves so they can one day return to the wild, the sanctuary is also leading a transformation in the way humans relate to wild animals.
All work by @amivitale supports @r.e.s.c.u.e with 100% of the proceeds from print sale going to the sanctuary. #bekindtoelephants #DontLetThemDisappear @nrt_kenya @tusk_org @conservationorg @kenyawildlifeservice #saveelephants #stoppoaching #everydayafrica #amivitale #coexistthemovement

Viva Colombia! I'm so excited to have had the opportunity to explore a tiny piece of this magnificent country for the first time and hope to be back much more in the future. Stay tuned later for pix from the trip. Here is Roberta getting a kiss from me, a fine old girl taking Felipe down a mountain in #Colombia.
#Colombia is incredible. Because of its huge range of ecosystems, from snowy mountains to deserts to jungles to beaches, it has the second highest biodiversity in the world. Amazingly, it is home to one of every 10 species on Earth. @natgeo @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @nikonusa #nikonusa #nikonlove #nikonnofilter #nikonambassador #photojournalism #amivitale #cuteanimals

Regrann from @r.e.s.c.u.e - An elephant is so much more than the sum of its parts. Elephants are very social animals and highly sensitive. Elephants can recognize themselves and have a brain structures similar to humans. After a death, elephants show signs of grief and may return year after year to visit the bones of the deceased, touching them with their trunks. In addition to all of this, they also play a vital role in the ecosystem, clearing brush and trees and allowing grasses to flourish, which in turn helps bulk grazers thrive, and above them, apex predators.

These wild elephants were filmed at the #Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy. #Namunyak is home to Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in Africa. We operate in partnership with Conservation International (@conservationorg) who provide critical operational support and work to scale the Reteti community-centered model to create lasting impacts worldwide.
You can help support the sanctuary by making a contribution at prizeo.com/elephants. For a contribution of just $10, you will receive a chance to win a trip to visit us here and another trip to see @davematthewsband in concert. Learn more and contribute by following the link in our profile.

Let's start the week off with something adorable...we absolutely love following photographer @amivitale's adventures around the globe, but most of all we love the unique insight she shares with us when photographing pandas in China! These photos were taken at the Bifengxia Panda Base (home to our Panda Conservation Experience): as you can see, the early years of a panda's life are the most adorable and delicate of all. Scroll through to see more of Ami's photos, head to her website (www.amivitale.com), and become a volunteer by joining the Panda Volunteer Experience today! http://bit.ly/PandaTGP
